Troubleshooting common Zapier issues

Tips for troubleshooting common issues with our Zapier integration.

If you’re experiencing issues with our Zapier integration, consult this guide for tips for fixing common issues. Some issues will be outside of the control of Dovetail, and may require you to contact Zapier.

Not authenticated, or unauthorized errors

Sometimes during the course of setting up your Zap, or afterwards, while it’s running, you might get an error that includes words such as Unauthorized or Not authenticated.

When you get one of these errors, it could mean that our Zapier integration doesn’t have permission to access to your data in Dovetail. This can usually be fixed by reconnecting your Dovetail account to Zapier:

  1. Click your name and profile picture in the bottom left of the sidebar.
  2. Click Integrations.
  3. If already connected to Zapier, click Disconnect.
  4. Then click Set up Zapier.

Alternatively, within Zapier you can go to your connected accounts page. Find your connected Dovetail account and click Reconnect: Reconnect Dovetail in Zapier
